This past week I was granted a Certificate of Rehabilitation after being told it would never happen numerous times.
Chance led the way through the process, demonstrating a tenacity and expertise unparalleled in my experience with other attorneys.
In researching for the appropriate representation amongst probably a dozen or so attorneys, I found that Chance was unique in that he had been through something similar and life changing himself.
Ironically it was the personal factors that caused the low AVVO rating that made me want to find out more about Chance.
Here’s an attorney not with a distant sympathy but with an active empathy for the struggle to succeed against overwhelming odds in a broken system.
Sure enough the reviews tell the real tale of Chance’s professionalism and track record, not the formula that produced the low rating.
Nothing about being caught up in the legal process is comfortable, but Chance was always focused and was as reassuring as could be.
Through the several years it took to get through my case, Chance was always there with answers and always figuring out the next move.
He was never deterred by setbacks and never pessimistic about the outcome. He often called me citing other relevant cases, sharing information and guiding me every step of the way.
I without hesitation recommend the services of Chance Oberstein to anybody in the process of applying for a Certificate of Rehabilitation. If Chance says he can help you, he absolutely can. He is the Sherpa that can lead you through the journey!
Being a registered sex offender on life-time federal probation, I needed to find a good lawyer who understood my situation. I was arrested by the local police about 6 months ago when I first called on Chance. After first meeting him I knew he was the best lawyer I would every find, so the search ended. He was able to notice immediately that I was the victim of a false arrest. His anger toward the injustice gave me much needed confidence. One month later my case was rejected by the district attorney without a hearing.
The second time I called on Chance was for a probation violation in federal court. He was there to represent me on a few hours notice. Probation recommended 90 days, but Chance was able to get me released with only 9 days served!!! Chance is now guiding me through the steps I need to remove myself from live-time probation. Thank you for caring Chance.
Dedicated and meticulous, set a new standard of excellence for criminal defense attorneys.
Chance Oberstein is a suberb attorney in all regards, his leadership and oversight lead to a positive outcome in my criminal case.
Chance Oberstein was in continuous communications with me throughout this ordeal...... This laser like focus resulted in early dismissal of my probation , as well as scrubbing my record.
To put it in more general terms, Chance answers his cell phone , Forget the office assistant nonsense.
Chance Obersein is a highly competent criminal defense attorney, forget the rest,stop reading and call him.
I give my highest possible recommendation to Chance Oberstien, I will recommend him to even my own family members if needed and would not hesitate to hire him again.
Chance Oberstein is the reason I received my COR (Certificate of Rehabilitation). His knowledge in this arena is unparalleled. I was told by several other attorney's that it was impossible. Chance's expertise and dedication to my problem helped me receive my COR and without him I don't know where I'd be today. For anyone out there that wants a knowledgeable attorney that will dedicate himself to you, he is your man. Thank God for Chance!!!
Extreme Caution... So says the Avvo rating at the top, however anyone who knows Chance, anyone who has worked with Chance, .. knows this to be EXTEMELY WRONG! Chance helped me to obtain something I was told by law enforcement I could not obtain .. a "certificate of rehabilitation" if not for Chance this would never had been possible. I HIGHLY recommend Chance Oberstein to anyone for any reason. He is passionate about his work and his clients! Thank You Chance!! You're the Best!!
Chance is an outstanding Attorney with integrity. He has helped me achieve something that I never thought would be possible. He is willing to go the extra mile and is confident in what he does. His experience is very unique and specialized. I would recommend him to anyone without reservation.
I hired Chance to help me navigate a path to getting a certificate of rehabilitation. We has been providing me services for nearly two years now. I had dealt with a previous attorney who only saw me as a "Franchise Client". Chance has been very support and encouraging. He is always there when I need him. He is very very informed of the law and is very thorough in his research and provides excellent guidance and support. If I had Chances services when I first needed an attorney, I am confident that I wouldn't have ended up in the situation I am where I need him now but I am so lucky to have him in my corner. You are in great hands if you have Chance by your side.
God knows exactly who to place in your life. God knew I needed, Chance Oberstein.
My son was charged with a felony sex crime for having consensual sex with his girlfriend. My son at the time was 19-years old and his girlfriend was 15-years old, soon to be 16-years old in a few months. Although there wern't any complaints from the girls parents, actually, they were very supportive of my son and concerned about the situation, the legal system still wanted to charge my son with a felony sex crime and wanted him to registered as a sex offender.
Mr. Oberstein researched a case simular to my son's and found out that registration was not necessary. When this informaiton was presented to the prosecuting attorney, not only did the charges get dropped to a misdemeanor, my son did not have to register as a sex offender.
Mr. Oberstein's expertise in this area is why my son was placed on probation for 4 years. Mr. Oberstein went above and beyond to make sure my son would not have to register as a sex offender.
I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Oberstein for you legal needs. Not only is he a knowledgable attorney. He is an attorney with a heart, compassionate, and will to go the distance for you. He is the man you want on your side.
Mr Oberstein Handle himself way above and beyond my expectations .. Chance was very insightful and helpful with my case . when I first meet with Mr Oberstein I knew he was the one I wanted in my corner . There was no Judgement , he was open and honest with everything up front which meant a lot to me .. Very Organized, dependable and keeps open the line of communication. He was always there even for the smallest question ..... I would never hesitate to recommend anyone to him !!!
No Need to look any further without a doubt my best and final choice for a lawyer. Chance listens and takes your case serious if not personel. Extremely organized and easy to contact even on the weekends. I was granted a certificate of rehabilitation in the state of california which is very very difficult and rare. Without Chance on my side in the court room i would not have gotten my life back!
